This tour was the highlight of our trip to Fairbanks. Seeing the Aurora Borealis had been on my husband's bucket list, and doing this tour made it possible. Ronn and Marketa were extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, and very friendly. They were able to help a group with a wide variety of cameras get set up to take amazing photos. Highly recommend...

You can't go to Fairbanks without going with Ronn and Marketa! They are so knowledgeable about the aurora science and even more so the photography aspect. I learned so much and I was able to capture photos of the aurora that I never thought I would be capable of. They were very professional and accommodating. I would HIGHLY recommend this... More

The Aurora Chasers tour is a combination tour and photo workshop to view the aurora outside Fairbanks, AK. My husband loves photography, and I seldom take photos myself. I just liked the idea of this tour so we would have the best chance of seeing it. (On cloudy nights, they travel and look for clear locations for viewing the aurora.)... More

Ronn and Marketa are professional photographers who bend over backwards to share their expertise with their clients. They made it easy to enjoy this experience. They went out of their way to ensure that we had an enjoyable but learn able time. The best part of the experience was sharing time at the Musher's cabin with the Sirius sled dogs.... More

Took some out-of-town relatives along on a recent trip to the Musher Cabin Tour and it was worth it! We had a fantastic time. Ronn and Marketa were very fun, patient, and knowledgable. Even though the lights didn't come out to play, we were still able to get some fantastic night sky shots and now we know how to go... More

Ronn and Marketa are consummate professionals. They are extremely well organized - giving great attention to detail. It really begins with their highly informative website. Definitely follow their recommendations for everything from camera equipment to clothing preparation. It will make your experience much more enjoyable and rewarding. My husband already had appropriate camera equipment but I rented a wide angle... More

Veteran photographers Ronn and Marketa Murray have an encyclopedic knowledge of photography, auroras, and Fairbanks that they put to good use on behalf of the clients during their 'Aurora Chasers' excursions. Clients book for ~six hour blocks of time during likely aurora activity periods (usually between about 9 PM and 3 AM). They are then given personalized attention in small... More

This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to photograph the aurora, but has no idea where to begin with camera settings. Ronn and Marketa go into great detail all the different information that affects Aurora photography. They helped each and every person on the tour with their individual camera functions on the ride to our destination so that we... More

So much positive stuff to say about this company. First of all, Ronn and Marketa are EXTREMELY knowledgeable about photography in general and aurora in particular. Everything about the tour is first class... the van, the equipment, the organization, etc. The advantages I see over other companies... small tour size, top-notch equipment, well organized, very informative, great viewing locations, local...
